Imagine someone sprinkling a pot of fairy dust over you, which has the power to give you confidence in an instant whenever you feel afraid or try to remember something funny to make you laugh in an unnerving situation. Try to change your mind set from negative to positive. When you find yourself in a challenging situation, ask yourself ‘what’s the worst that can happen?’ 9/10 times, nothing bad will come of it – the thoughts in your head are always worse than the actual scenario. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help whether its medical help or from friend or family member. Seeking comfort in others going through the same thing is also useful. It’s easier said than done but remember things will get better.

Here are a few techniques to try:
1. Focus on a word or phrase such as ‘I can’ whilst taking part in repetitive exercises such as walking or running
2. Focus on breathing exercises and your posture in activities such as yoga as it will relax your body
3. Go to and tackle the places that scare you – try and create a nicer memory of that place so next time you are there, your brain won’t trigger a protective reaction
4. Agree to as much as you can even though you might feel out of your comfort zone
5. When you feel scared or alone, remember you aren’t
